Yep, this list has some of my favorite AUDs. I'd throw up some more, but I don't want to overwhelm our new friend. And I also hope that some of our "SBD Only" folks will take some time to really give a listen to a few of these and re-consider.

I'm not SBD only, although I much prefer 'em, but I'll tell you what, that damn MOTB arbuthnot put up last week made me reconsider everything. Holy smokes, that was unbelievable.

Oh, and to the OP-- welcome to the Dead! You'll take some razzing for the "no pre-'77" bit," maybe, but that's just part of the fun. Go for what moves you for starters. The incarnations of other eras have a way of revealing their magic slowly, over time. Except the 90's. ; )

One of the best sounding AUDs and best-performed shows available on this site. 5-star show & sound:

Great minds.... ;-)

I would also encourage our "newbie" friend to check out 6/22/73 but he said "nothing before '77"...which is too bad since 6/22/73 is my #2 pick for best AUD on this site.

The BirdSong is a top 3 all time, IMO.

Get out of my head. For pre-77 AUD's, the PNE is truly special. Amazing quality for the time and exceptional peformance to boot. I agree that the Birdsong is one of the best ever (IMHO). Also, for pre-77, we can't forget the 8/5+6/71 Hollywood Palladium. Again, quality holds it's own agains many later tapes.
